Ancient Chinese Secret

Traditionally, I don’t believe in supplements. If you eat a healthy, balanced diet you should be able to get all of the nutrients you need from food.  But, let’s be realistic.  Sometimes it is hard to monitor everything our kids eat and with swine flu looming, it is better to be safe than sorry. So here’s one more natural way to boost your kid’s immune system during flu season, look no more.

My sister-in-law Candice, an acupuncturist and all around genius when it comes to Chinese medicine, herbs and natural remedies, told me about Herbasaurs chewable elderberry plus supplements (  Specially formulated for kids, these supplements are made with elderberry extract, reishi mushrooms and astragalus root.

So what does that mean for you? Well, Astragalus root has been used to promote immune function and as a tonic to build stamina. Elderberry is an excellent source of vitamins A, B and C and helps to strengthen the body’s immune system. Elderberries also contain bioflavonoids and anthocyanins, which positively influence cell function. Reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years for treating fatigue, asthma, cough, and liver ailments, and to promote longevity. Reishi’s Chinese name lingzhi means “herb of spiritual potency.”

I had to hide the bottle from my husband.
